Its June 27, that day in the year for the town lottery.
There's only 300 people in the village so the event onlytakes 2 hours. Families gather together and wait for the lottery event to start.
Mr.Summers runs the event, he arrives to the town square with a black box. Mr Graves the postmaster is also there. The black box isn't the original box used, that one has gone lost many years ago.
Mr.Summers and Mr.Graves mix up the papers in the box. All of a sudden Tessie Hutchinson arrives late because she totally forgot it was the day of the lottery event. The crowd starts laughing at her late arrival.
Mr.Summers asks who will draw for Dunbar. Since he doesn't have a son to draw for him he asked if Watson will draw instead.
The Hutchinsons draw and open up their papers. When they open up the papers they find that Tessie got the paper with the black dot. Mr.Summers instructed every one to get up. Suddenly the villagers grab stones and chase Tessie, Throwing them at her she got hit in the head with one.
